~ Charming Tilda ~

This card has proven to be a real labour of love.
What started out as a simple birthday card for a
friend has now grown and grown as I thought of
more and more elements to add to it.
The ladies at Magnolia Down Under want to see some
charms incorporated in their challenge this week.
I had these metal floral charms sitting in my stash for
some time just waiting for the right card to use them on.
I think they set the card off just nicely.
Finally Edwin gets to make an appearance on one of my
cards. I'm not very nice to him, infact, I'm quite
neglectful. I think this might be the first time I have
included a single Edwin on a card. I have used the
skating pair of Tilda and Edwin together before, but yes,
this is definately the first Edwin on his own. Not that he
gets to be on the front of the card, but he's on the card
and that's a start.

I'm not sure how I survived up until now without
the Nellie Snellen Flower Punch set.
It might actually be my new favourite toy.
